  • Responsibility of Directors: The CIPC has made it clear that it is the responsibility of the directors to ensure that their contact details are up to date on the CIPC database. This will not only facilitate effective communication but also help to avoid any potential issues or misunderstandings that may arise due to outdated or incorrect contact information.

In a move aimed at enhancing customer service, the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) has issued a notice urging all Co-operatives to update their directors’ contact details on the CIPC database. This initiative is part of the CIPC’s ongoing efforts to improve its customer service offering.

The CIPC has emphasized the importance of this information, stating that it is crucial for ensuring that customers receive consistent and essential communication. The updated contact details will also enable the CIPC to keep customers informed about any developments or changes related to their Co-operatives.

The CIPC has made it clear that it is the responsibility of the directors to ensure that their contact details, including email and cell phone numbers, are up to date on the CIPC database. To facilitate this process, directors are required to complete form COOP2 and email it, along with certified ID copies of the respective directors, to coopscontact@cipc.co.za. The form can be downloaded from the CIPC’s website.

The CO-OP 2 form must be completed in full to inform the office of changes to the board of directors. This includes new appointments, resignations, expired terms, removals, or deceased directors. The number of directors must always be within the minimum and maximum specified in the co-operative’s constitution. Supporting documents, such as ID copies, resignation letters, meeting minutes, and death certificates, must be attached to the form.

The CIPC has expressed its appreciation for the cooperation of the Co-operatives in this matter and looks forward to maintaining open lines of communication with them.

This initiative by the CIPC is a clear demonstration of its commitment to improving its service offering and ensuring that its customers are always informed about developments that may affect their Co-operatives. It also underscores the importance of maintaining up-to-date contact information in the CIPC database, which is crucial for effective communication between the CIPC and its customers.

The CIPC’s call for updated contact information is a timely reminder for all Co-operatives to review their records and ensure that their directors’ contact details are current. This will not only facilitate effective communication but also help to avoid any potential issues or misunderstandings that may arise due to outdated or incorrect contact information.

In conclusion, the CIPC’s initiative to have Co-operatives update their directors’ contact details on its database is a positive step towards improving customer service and ensuring effective communication. It is a call to action that all Co-operatives should heed for the smooth operation of their businesses.
